It was an emotional night for Miranda Lambert, who teared up as she took the stage at the “Healing in the Heartland” benefit concert for Oklahoma tornado victims.
Lambert and husband Blake Shelton live in Oklahoma and joined forces with Facebook, United Way and NBC to help raise money for the cause.
The country singer, who has focused on animals affected by the disaster, got choked up as she tried to sing the words to “The House That Built Me.” Eventually the crowd had to join in to keep the tune going and Miranda mouthed “sorry” to fans as she struggled to stay strong.
Sheryl Crowe was so touched by her performance, she wrote on Facebook, “Just re-watched Miranda Lambert on 'Healing In The Heartland.' Love your tender heart, Miranda - thank you for sharing your love for OK & those sweet animals.”
